ASML US, LP brings together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers - to reduce the size and increase the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. Our headquarters are in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations around the United States including main offices in Wilton, CT, Chandler, AZ, San Jose, CA and San Diego, CA.
This position requires access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. § 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with applicants who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.

Job Mission

At ASML, the Droplet Generation Department is responsible for the development and engineering of the droplet generator, located within the vacuum EUV source vessel to enable production of a droplet stream, in a controlled way, leading to EUV light generation. The function is also responsible for the overall integration of the droplet generator within the source and performance validation. The complexity of the EUV source puts exciting and challenging demands on the Droplet Generation related activities. If you like extreme challenges and want to help bring the next generation of technology to the world, then come join ASML.
US Internship – Material Science (Droplet Generator) We are looking for an enthusiastic intern to help the Droplet Generator team with investigating various aspects related to tin oxidation . To achieve this, the intern will:
  • Work in a team environment alongside local experienced engineers on tin oxide related topics in the context of droplet generator.
  • Define test plans (modelling, analysis and experiments) to investigate hypothesis, review with the team.
  • Perform modelling and calculations and validate them experimentally; built experimental setup in case required.
  • Analyze data, review, report and document results and present to the team.
  • Additional tasks will be tailored to match the education / experience level of the intern as well as the interns learning objectives for the summer.
  • The goal of the internship is for you to learn about working in a corporate setting and to provide hands on experience solving real world problems in a team environment.
  • Interns will typically be required to document and present their findings as well as making an end of summer presentation to the group about what they achieved during their internship.


  • Current active college students on Material Science, Applied Physics, Engineering, Chemistry, undergraduate Junior or above, with a GPA of 3.0 or above.

Personal skills

  • Knowledge of MS Office applications is required.
  • Experimental skills and strong analytical skills with the ability to define experiments, analyze results and formulate hypothesis required. Tin Oxide Investigations
  • Possess strong ownership characteristics and commitment to achieving results on time.
  • Have strong written and oral communicative skills.
  • Possess a creative mind in order to find novel design solutions.
  • Have as strong problem solving skills and the ability to take initiative with little guidance.
  • Be a demonstrated “team player” with a quality orientation and interpersonal skills.
  • Be willing to accept feedback from a variety of stakeholders.
